Antec DF-85 – Externals

The actual case itself, is a reasonably nice looking piece of kit. Like the box it’s huge and though the styling is catered more to a gamer than an enthusiast it still has a reasonably professional look to it; from certain angles.

There is a fair chunk of plastic on this chassis though, one such example of said material being the large, clear plastic grill on the side panel.

The front panel has some thick plastic clips covering the 5.25″ drive bays. I’m not really sure why, but they do.

They pop out fairly easily and are also simple to remove completely should you want to install an optical drive.

Beneath the 5.25″ drive bays you have two plastic bedecked fans covered in grills and dust filters to protect the interior.

The bottom right of each bay has a small fan controller knob which allows you to fine tune cooling and noise levels.

    Hola A Todos, yo tengo este case y cada vez estoy mas complacido de haberme decidido por el, si es muy costoso y mas para mi que tuve que importarlo y por su peso salio aun mas caro, pero a la larga es una inversion para quienes queremos tener lo mejor y con las mejores prestaciones, es muy silencioso con los 7 ventiladores en bajo la ventilacion es espectacular ninguno de mis 5 discos pasa de los 35ºC y ni hablar de la board, aunque para complementar esta inversion a mi core i7 2600k le puse un Thermalright Silver Arrow Dual 14cm que en 800 y 900 RPM mantiene mi CPU en 34 y 38ºC y cuando lo esfuerzo demasiado llega a los 45ºC.
    La organizacion del cableado en la tapa derecha es lo mejor, es muy espacioso y da lugar a un mayor ventilacion del interior.

    Hello To All, I have this case and every time I’m more pleased with having chosen for him, if it is too expensive and more to me that I had to import it and went about their weight even more expensive, but ultimately is an investment for those we have the best and the best performance, is very quiet with 7 fans in the ventilation is spectacular none of my 5-disc beyond 35 º C and not to mention the board, but to complement this investment to my core i7 2600K will I put a Thermalright Dual 14cm Silver Arrow in 800 and 900 RPM keeps my CPU at 34 and 38 º C and when I try too reaches 45 º C.
    The organization of the wiring at the top right is the best, is very spacious and leads to increased ventilation of the interior.
